About Alex

I recently graduated from Kennesaw State University with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology. Throughout my time in school, I found myself helping my younger family members and friends with their assignments.

I have garnered experience in tutoring throughout my educational experience. In high school, I was part of a Peer Editing Group for younger students. Doing this required me to read essays and help shape them into a body of work that not only satisfied exceptional rubric requirements, but also satisfied the student's confidence in their work. To do this, I relied on my knowledge of language and writing, as well as my experience in the course. I was selected to be a part of this group by the course instructor, who selected top-performing students from previous semesters to come and assist the next generation of students.

I have also been able to gain experience as a tutor/mentor through my work at a Summer Camp each year. During that time I get to spend time with kids ranging in age from 2-16. I really love being able to teach them various skills, from problem-solving to life skills. I love being able to influence them to be the best versions of themselves, and to have the confidence to go after what they want and the value of working hard.

I have been approved to tutor in English, Grammar, Vocabulary, Reading, Spelling, American History, and Psychology. Throughout the course of my own education, I have completed and excelled in each of the aforementioned courses. I currently hold a degree in Psychology, which required me to take and pass the Psychology MFT (Major Field Test), on which I was one of the top performers in my class. I also performed well on the SAT, earning an essay score of 8, with a writing score of 610. My course load in literature was rigorous, including AP British Literature and AP Language/Composition.

As a tutor, I will ask that the student have prepared questions for the beginning of each session, which will provide the basis for the focus of the session. A short assignment will be left with the student at the end of each session, to be completed prior to the next meeting. Feedback will be provided to both the student and the parent periodically regarding progress.

I truly think that in order to make a difference, you must be different and inspire change. By working as a tutor, I am able to meet and inspire people from all corners of the world and from many walks of life. My goal as a tutor is not only to teach, but to give the confidence and knowledge needed to face courses without hesitation. As a tutor, I will both challenge and cheer for you.
I look forward to speaking with you and helping you achieve your goals!

Please don't hesitate to contact me, I'm here for you! Questions welcomed. I can't wait to meet you and help you on the road to success!
